The individual processes Milling and Turning as well as Grinding are distinguished by their high flexibility, which, therefore, overtake an important role in the last steps of complex process chains. The goal of the subcluster Milling and Turning is to prepare a methodology to operate process dimensioning systematically, thus making it able to react to product innovations flexibly. The goal of the subcluster Grinding encompasses the mastery of adaptive and automated fine machining processing of complex turbomachine components.
Clamping is centrally embedded within this technology cluster in order to reach the goal of designing a flexible process chain. The conceptual design of clamping has to be viewed in a detailed way to be able to serve the entire process chain as well as all individual technologies, and to integrate them together seamlessly.
In the end, process monitoring should make the technologies available, with whose aid the developed general dimensioning methods can be evaluated in the application and, thus, verified.
